    Hey ladies and gentle men(yes you men too) if you want to have great skin its called noxema and olay moisturizer. My grandmother has used noxema to clean her face since she was a teenager and uses olay after she washes. She has glowing, baby smooth skin and she gets asked out by the young men all the time. I use noxema daily exfoiliating cleanser and olay also and I'm forever getting compliments on my skin. There is also (and I know it sounds weird but a co worker of mine does it and her skin is fabulous) you put some milk of magnesia on your face before you go to bed at night but do not rinse it off until you wake up in the morning. The people I know who do this have skin that is so beautiful its not even funny.

    True. Noxzema is a nice product. My sister has been Noxzema skin cream to wash her face for the last 4 or 5 years & it really is good. It doesn't dry out the skin, is soothing to sun burns & removes make up pretty well.

    That's real interesting about the milk of magnesia all over the face. I heard its good for spot treatments of pimples but never heard about it on the entire face. I'm afraid I would have horrid flashbacks of when my dad tried to make me drink it when I was little and it made me gag because of the smell.

    There is this product that has been on the market in Europe for at least 60 years now, it's called Nivea, and I use the cream for almost all areas of the body. It's a proven cream and does a good job, try it sometime. For burned skin through too much sun, I add AloeVera straight from the plant. We bought our plant in Fuerto Ventura and keep it in a well lighted area in the house, does not need watering, just a little spray once a month and planted in a pot of sand - really carefree plant with a lot of healing qualities. This plant is also found outside in California, Arizona and Nevada - at least that's where I've seen them grow.

    I LOVE the smell of Nivea. It's so clean and the texture is really rich. I think it would be too thick for my facial skin. I wouldn't mind using it on my body. All my aunts always had it on their dressers in Pakistan. Another childhood memory - but this one is more pleasant than the Milk of Magnesia.

    I just bought Noxzema cleanser w/ moisturizer
    Yesterday and used it last night. This is a day after reading your post. I can tell yaa.. my face never looked so clean and refreshed and most of all, it didn't make my skin dry, I was actually thinking of not putting any moisturizers afterwards because it feels so smooth and moisturized. Plus it's less than $5 bucks.. isn't that a great deal. Thanks for the post, I love the effect of this product on my skin.. I hope it stays that way or hopefully... even better on days to come! :D

    Glad it's working for you. Please don't forget to think about vitamins and minerals this time of the year. Sometimes when those are short, the skin takes a beating especially if you live in a cold area. Also keep skin protected from bad weather.
